I have been homeschooling for almost 2 years. My kids are 10, 6, 4. I am ready to give up. I don't want to quit, but I think that is from me being stubborn and not wanting to feel like a failure.
I want to homeschool. My kids tell me that they want to be homeschooled. The problem is that I am feeling overwhelmed and they don't listen. It isn't about school, but they are not helping out around the house. They were supposed to do laundry before we had co-op today. They were playing instead. It happens quite frequently and it is not getting better. I would like to think that I can leave them unattended while I take a shower but it doesn't work.
I don't really see it as a homeschool problem, but as a parenting problem. It is affecting my family negatively. My husband is at the point that he doesn't care if we homeschool. He wants peace in our family and there is none.
I am in tears. I have no idea what to do.
